Jack is the head writer for a successful soap opera, and he's sweet on the show's star, lovely Laura. It's easy for everyone but Jack to see that she's playing him for a sap. But a conk on the head brings Jack some new insights - and some new powers. He finds himself in Ashford Falls, site of his fictional soap opera -- and everything he writes comes true! It's a fantastic opportunity to get Rachel, Laura's character, to fall in love with him. But life isn't easy even in the fictional world, and even when you're the author!Written by

The movie establishes the fact that the creation of the series and the world within the series are occurring almost concurrently; a writer can be seen typing the lines Rachel (Emma Samms) and Dr. Kirkwood (Dr. Rasche) are later saying. Yet, Carter Hedison (Raymond Burr) is in the hospital in the portrayal and at home running his business at the same time. See more »

John Candy's best... Hilarious all the way through...
I can watch this movie over and over and never get tired (then again, I haven't ever tried watching it 10 times in a row in the same day)... Candy does his own sort of persona with his trademark charm without getting annoying, and the way the film turns constantly as he tries to solve his dilemma is great (particularly when he starts to write while drunk). Not a masterpiece by any standard, but a fun flick...
